Sheriff of Nottingham’s long-overdue first expansion Merry Men adds a sixth player and plenty of optional modules

As they say: good things come to those who wait. Sheriff of Nottingham is now getting its first expansion, Merry Men.

First of all, Merry Men adds support for a sixth player. There’s more, in the form of several different game play variants and modules that can be mixed in as you see fit.

These include the introduction of deputies, two of which replace the Sheriff when playing with six people. The deputies can work together to search bags or allow players to pass through – sharing the benefits or punishments equally when in agreement, or splitting their decision to the potential gain (or loss) of just one.

Laws are also new, allowing the Sheriff to implement two laws each round for a greater variety of playing tactics.

The black market consists of an extra set of cards, all showing a particular illegal good. The first player to smuggle the good in successfully gets to claim those cards, offering a big cash bonus.

Similarly, there are also special orders, which are bonus cards but with both legal and illegal goods displayed – smuggling both displayed goods in the same bag gets the card and reward.

The eponymous gameplay variant, Merry Men, adds in characters from Robin Hood’s gang, who can be smuggled to unlock their special abilities.

Sheriff of Nottingham: Merry Men should be out this August from Arcane Wonders.
